A CONSPIRACY theorist has claimed the so-called ‘God of Chaos’ Apophis asteroid will hit Earth and said where he thinks it will land.
Michael Horn, who calls himself a research scientist, dismissed NASA research suggesting the space rock will pass within 19,000 miles of the Earth’s surface. He said the 340 metre-wide asteroid will in fact hit somewhere between the North Sea and the Black Sea. Mr Horn, who also represents Ufologist Billy Meier, even believes the asteroid will crack the Earth, releasing gasses which could kill millions of people.
He was unable to explain how his “research team” came to their conclusions but told Express.co.uk: “There are two things we are speaking about here, a massive asteroid collision and the otherwise certain collision impact from Apophis.
“We know, in terms of the research time that I have, will be between the North Sea and the Black Sea, which isn’t too far from the UK.
“To spell out such an impact, we have taken the trouble to illustrate this information, we have put it online in comic book form so people can have a graphic sense of what this means.
“The descriptive words are probably even more important because of the tremendous damage.

“If and when Apophis, let us say specifically in the area between the North Sea and the Black Sea.
“It will cause a crack, cracking in the Earth’s crust whether it hits by the sea or nearby.
“It will cause a massive release of gasses, there will be pieces of the asteroid and the Earth that would be hurled back into space.
“There is tremendous heat as a thing like that comes in meaning fires and millions of people perish in the immediate area.
“Then the asteroid impact produces a possibly global effect.
“From everything from nuclear winter kind of phenomenon where the sky is darkened and gasses migrating damage to the seas.
“Every kind of consequential complication from a massive object coming in at enormous speeds and glowing hot in the atmosphere and impacting the Earth.
“We don’t want to see that, nobody does so whether it is between the North Sea and the Black Sea or any place if the Apophis asteroid hits it will cause massive damage.”
NASA estimates the asteroid – full name 99942 Apophis – will skim past Earth in 10 years, and has already begun preparations for its arrival into the solar system.

But Mr Horn says it will strike on either April 13 2029 or April 13 2036.
Apophis is one of the largest asteroids to pass so near to the Earth’s surface.
Even SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has offered his views.
Sharing an Express.co.uk article about Apophis he warned Earth “currently has no defence” for the impact of a “big rock”.
He said: “Great name! Wouldn’t worry about this particular one, but a big rock will hit Earth eventually and we currently have no defence.”
